Feeling suicidal

You are loved by many people even if you can’t see that now.

Call 911 if you are in immediate danger of harming yourself.
Other ways to get immediate help:
National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-8255): You will receive confidential support from trained volunteers.  This resource is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 
Crisis Text Line: Text to 741 741 for an immediate response, 24/7. This is a free text messaging service.  Crisis Text Line is also always looking for volunteer crisis counselors, and provides training as part of its volunteer program.

If you have been thinking about suicide, please know you are not alone. You may been struggling for some time, or your crisis may have come upon you without warning. Either way, it feels harder to cope. But know this: An entire community – loved ones and strangers – is rooting for you to continue your story, for your recovery and well-being. That community includes Forefront.

No matter who you are or what your circumstances are, someone is waiting on the other end of the line – or text message, or chat – to listen without judgment.
